We went here yesterday my mom and my 2 friends. We loved the scenery, the sculptures and the history of the reserve. It's a must do.

It was quite interesting but we were a bit disappointed by its size. We thought that there would be more displays. Nice gift shop.

It was interesting to wander through the cultural centre, and read the information there. We didn't go up the trails that were available. We took lots of photos. The gift shop has a good range of items for sale.

Spent a great morning here. There is lots to do and learn and the views down over the lake are beautiful. The building itself is very interesting as it is built into the side of the mountain.

Lovely place. Our two kids aged 4 and 7 loved it. Very educational. It was too hot to go on the walk, but I would try to do that if I returned.

Our website says we are open Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays only from 10am until 4pm. This should change in April but until then these are our current hours. Thank you.
